    I suppose we are never happy with the weather but I came home at lunchtime today with bright sunshine and temps over 36 C. I was shattered after climbing the stiff hill at the end.

    I wouldn't mind but when it's warm or mild, it seems to be impossible to stay dry in rain. Don't wear a waterproof.. get soaked. Do wear a waterproof, get soaked from the sauna effect.

    I've tried Goretex and it's no better than whatever my much cheaper Altura jacket is made from!

    I suppose I should just concentrate on staying warm.

    Here in North Wales, we say, "You can ride when it's cold and you can ride when it's wet, but you can't ride when it's cold and wet."

    I've pretty much given up trying to keep dry now - only bother with a jacket if it's realy pouring, otherwise, I find a change of kit takes up very little space in my pannier (which does have a waterproof cover). Don't mind getting wet on the homeward leg, but the run in to work can be no fun at all when the rain's in your face as this morning.

    Still worrying about rain? We are forecast to get to 35°C at the weekend, and 37°C on Monday. Seeing this is about 20 degrees warmer than at present, this may take some getting used to.
